wicker, the other to president obama, each containing the same writing, the same cryptic phrase each tainted with ricin. both being tested in the army's bio warfare research lab at ft. diedrich in maryland. joe johns joining us and dana bash joining us, as well. dana, you've been talking to your sources, getting more information on how all this went down. what have you learned? >> i've learned from a law enforcement official here that they have been actually tracking the man who was arrested for some time, because he had been sending letters to senator wicker, this is not the first time. it had been going on for a while. so i'm told they gave the information that they had -- that they collected. they collected a record on this individual to the fbi, and the fbi was able then to go down to tupelo, mississippi to make this arrest of this individual today. and, again, this is -- this man was arrested in the case of sending what they still believe to be at least initial positive tests of ricin, letters to senator roger wicker of mississippi and also we learned today president obama. neit
. those letters addressed to president obama and mississippi republican senator roger wicker. we have learned the suspect is a man from tupelo, mississippi, a man with a long history of sending letters to lawmakers in washington. investigators say that early tests on those letters were positive. that mail never came close to the president or the senator for that matter. they set off alarms though in postal screening facilities away from the white house and away from chill. i want to start our coverage this hour now with mike emanuel who is live on capitol hill and there is a lot we can report now that we could not several hours ago. what do we have now. >> that's right, bill. we can tell you the man's name is kenneth curtis, he is from tupelo, mississippi. the arrest made we understand this evening unclear whether charges will be filed tonight or tomorrow and where they will be filed you better believe federal law enforcement and prosecutorial people talking about exactly how to proceed from this point. we know that these letters addressed to president obama and senator roger wicker,
: but south carolina republican lindsey graham said the measures being touted by president obama and most democrats would do little to reduce gun violence. >> the president wanted three things done. he wanted to ban assault weapons. he wanted to limit magazine sizes. and he wanted to impose a universal background check. well all three of those concepts are going to be on the floor of the united states senate for a vote, and they're all going to lose. why? because they're not the solution to the problem we all face. >> on this vote the yeas are 54, the nays are 46. >> reporter: in the end, as vice president biden presided, the background check amendment failed to clear the 60-vote threshold needed to pass. the concealed firearm measure and the ban on assault weapons. also failed. but late in the day, senate democrats-- joined by family members of victims of gun violence-- pledged to keep up the fight. >> i want everyone to understand this is just the beginning not the end. the forces so obsessed with defeating any commonsense reforms whatsoever, they lost site of big picture. >> reporter:
obama. massachusetts governor and the boston mayor as well as yoyo ma, and mitt romney, long time boston resident will be in attendance. meantime, all around downtown, memorials are cropping up, makeshift memorials. there are flowers everywhere, jerseys hanging along the police barricades and a sign on one of the buildings that says boston doesn't blink. training for 2014 begins now. all of this comes this day of remembrance after a day of breakthroughs yesterday. and the breakthroughs include images, so many images available. this is one of them that was obtained by our nbc affiliate whdh that shows what appears to be a bag at the site of one of the blasts. that could be the bomb. there is also video that has not been released yet, an image of a man believed to be around six feet tall in a white or off white baseball cap that is certainly some of these authorities want to talk to. this video shows this individual putting a bag down near the scene of the second blast. some of the best pictures come from the surveillance camera on the front of the lord and taylor store, which is directly
's second term. four months after president obama called the country to action in the wake of the newtown shootings, using all of the power of the presidency to push gun safety measures, every measure he championed went down to defeat on the senate floor. when the compromise took shape, there was optimism they could get something through the senate but this bill to expand background checks for gun buyers only managed to win 54 votes. it needed 60 to move forward. >> shame on you! >> there will be order in the senate. >> the tucson shooting survivor who wrestled a third gun clip away from gerald loughner screamed when they heard the measure had failed and were escorted out of the capitol. four democrats voted no and four republicans voted for it. after the background check legislation which the white house believed had the best chance of passing was defeated. one by one the senate blocked proposals to ban assault weapons, limit magazines and by agreeing to a 60-vote threshold on all amends, democrats held off passage of republican amendments they believed would weaken or kill the bill. an
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn
to question in relation to the boston marathon bombings. all this as president obama went to that city today to help begin the healing. scott cohn has the latest from that city. scott? >> michelle, we are, indeed, about two hours away from this long-awaited news conference. we've had an official news blackout for two days now. so we should find out what the authorities have been working on the last couple of days. some actual official information about that. potentially, a picture or pictures of the people they want to talk to and what they've learned from all of those video images. and we know that there were cell phone cameras that people have turned in and all the surveillance cameras, like the one in the lord and taylor store, just across the street from the second blast. and also, at least two others that were operated by the boston athletic association at the finish line, and those could be very high-quality images, because those were high-definition cameras. so if they caught something, that could be crucial. also, there are the fragments that they've picked up of the explosive device
taken. i look at you and say i'm angry about something. i'm angry about obama. i'm angry about bush. person says, says, i'm angry, too. no one else is doing something. all of a sudden you have a cycle that leads to an act of violence that neither individual would take otherwise. >> i'm going to come back to that cycle of violence. mr. schwecker, want to go to you as a former assistant fbi director. according to the news reports, these two guys parted ways, okay. so suspect number two with the white hat backwards, he put the bag down and that was right near the explosion so we've kind of fingered him as the guy for the explosion. what about the first bomb explosion? they parted ways. does that mean that they were accountable for the first explosion, or do you think there are other people accountable for the first explosion? >> well, first, larry, i think what's happened here is you've got a composite of videos from all up and down that -- throughout that area. private videos, digital image videos, so they have pieced together at least that these two were together at some point, and -

et cetera to keep your maturity short. >> i want to squeeze in a tax question. we hear that the obama administration may want to put a cap on the tax exemption. is that another reason to clean up your portfolio now rather than wait? >> well, i don't know that it's another reason to clean up your portfolio, but it's certainly something to keep on the radar screen. you know, obviously, with everything that's going on in washington, everything is on the table. and with each one that comes out, there's a proposal that there would be a 28% cap on deductions so no one would be lower than the 28% tax bracket. that means you couldn't have all tax-free income that would put you in no tax bracket. in essence, that would be a tax on municipal bonds. mayors and governors are fighting this very, very aggressively. and each time they seem to get it out of the budget proposal and then a new budget proposal comes out and it's back in. i do believe that ultimately, state and local governments will be success chl in arguing that this will drive the economy right back into the recession and actually won

and gentlemen, let's get right to the big news. mysterious letters sent to president obama and mississippi senator roger wicker. tests indicate these letters contain the poison ricin. sadly when you're in the public eye, this stuff happens. that's why i never open my own email. this is a fast-moving story and there's still a lot we don't know. for instance, there's a senator roger wicker? there's only 100 of these folks and i never heard that name before. roger wicker does not sound plausible as a senator. sounds more like a patio furniture store. next thing you're telling me there's a congresswoman jennifer convertible. so, the point is we don't really know that much about this ricin situation, but in boston 48 hours after the horrific tragedy there has been a major breakthrough in the reporting of all the other things we don't know. >> investigators have identified a suspect. >> i was told by law enforcement official that this was a dark-skinned male. >> suspect has been arrested in the boston bombings. >> the suspect was a dark-skinned male. >> getting some conflicting reports about an

president obama calls it shameful. >> while this compromise didn't contain everything i wanted or everything these families wanted, it did represent progress. it represented moderation and common sense. that's why 90% of the american people supported it. but instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. >> we'll have more on that later in the show. and the arrest in the ricin case. we begin with jake tapper live from boston where the president will travel for an interfaith service tomorrow in memory of the victims. jake, a pretty chaotic day in many ways. lots of claim, counterclaim, leak, counter leak. where are we now, 9:00 p.m. eastern, there has been no arrest as we speak. but what has there been today in terms of development? >> reporter: well, we know that there has been some -- there have been some advances made in the investigation. specifically through videotape obtained from the lord & taylor store in copley square, not far from where i'm standing right now. and that with that, surveillance video investigators do believe they fou
traces of ricin poison have been sent to washington one mailed tout president obama and others to some snores. the letters were intercepted. since september 11th all mail going into elected officials in washington, d.c. is screened. we know identities of three people killed in the bombing. they are 8-year-old martin richard a third grader from dorchester. 29-year-old crystal campbell a restaurant manager from medford, massachusetts. and lingzi lu. 13 other people have had limbs amputated and a number of the casualties remain in serious condition. now, please keep all that have in mind while digesting the following. some media people are exploiting the terrorist attacks. others speculating in an irresponsible way. there are some examples. >> the real patriots' day is april 19th. the date that counts for people on the right in the united states. as it happens massachusetts celebrates patriot day on the third monday of every other month. >> let me ask you about domestic terrorism. they tend to be on the far right. do they advertise it? do they try to get credit as a group? hate america so

speeches that barack obama has ever given as president of the united states. newtown families and tucson survivors standing with the president at the white house when he made those remarks. many of them today were looking on in the senate as the background checks bill was filibustered. there's a lot to explain what happened there in that story and what happens next. this is, clearly, the biggest policy story in this president's second term thus far, by far it is. but also in the midst of all of this, still today, the country is riveted to the continuing news out of boston after the bombing of the boston marathon two days ago. the first thing you need to know what happened today in the news about boston is some of what you may have heard today out of boston was flat-out wrong. >> again, i have a boston source, fran townsend has a second source, in fact, an arrest has been made on wednesday. here's what fran's source said, an arrest has been made based on two different videos showing images of the suspect. i was told the video enhancement showed a dark-skinned male placing the package at t
know the obama administration has been briefed on what has taken place here in west, texas. they are aware of the situation and monitoring the situation. the human toll, early estimates are that hundreds have been injured. officials are confirming that there are fatalities. however, they have not given a number of fatalities at this time. as charles hadlock just reported, this is a small town so they would not be equipped to handle the number of injured themselves. we have reports that a number of people have gone to waco, texas. they are reporting they are treating a number of burn injuries, which would be consistent with the nature of this kind of explosion. in terms of some other effects of this devastating blast, officials have closed i-35. that is the main interstate into and out of west, texas. they have also issued a no-fly zone of a three-mile radius around that area. the concern is of a secondary explosion taking place, which of course could affect aircraft. there are also concerns about toxic fumes. parts of the area have been evacuated for those same reasons. the

, from president obama, to governor deval patrick, the message rightly has been one of resilience, inspired, i think, by the resilience of the people of boston. >> should we care whether it's terrorism in the sense of what the motivations were, whether they were ideological or political in some way, does that matter in terms how we, as a society, think about how to prevent it, how we should charge or punish the person who did it? >> it matters because we are a nation who has a particular relationship with violence, so, once something is defined as terrorism, it changes our relationship to how we think about who the perpetrator will be, depending on who is caught so that if the perpetrator is white and male, it will not be the kind of -- we will not think about it in terms of terrorism as if he were muslim. that's just the reality of how we think about terrorism. it becomes the -- >> we call timothy mcveigh a terrorist, don't we? >> we call timothy mcveigh a terrorist, but we do not deal with white men in america the way we've dealt with muslims post-9/11. there is a difference in

house official says the obama administration has been briefed on the situation. they continue monitoring local and state response through the federal emergency management agency. in addition to tending to those who have been injured, officials are concerned about the possibility of a secondary explosion. a texas state official gave a briefing early this morning and said that, quote, there are still active ingredient there's. and that the fire continued to burn. with active ingredients, we can only assume he means dangerous chemicals that could lead to a secondary explosion. to the force of that blast. it was felt, reportedly, as far as 70 miles away. our own charles hadlock, was 60 miles away at the time. and he felt that explosion. and one official who got an opportunity to survey some of the damage said it was massive. the damage was massive. it looked just like iraq. and looked just like the oklahoma city bombing. that's how severe that damage was. again, residents have been told to evacuate from nearby areas. and those who are in the area who have not evacuated are being told to stay
